Hnry is an innovative service for contractors and freelancers: sign up and get paid into your Hnry Bank Account and we make sure all of your taxes are paid and filed for every dollar you earn. Your trusted financial sidekick, Hnry calculates, deducts, and pays all of your tax obligations – on time, every time, and all of the time.
As a registered tax agent with IRD and ACC, Hnry also tackles your:
- ACC levies
- GST payments
- Student Loan repayments
Hire Hnry for just 1% of your self-employed income (with fees capped at $2,000/yr, exc. GST, ), and you’ll get access to a team of tax experts who will provide you with comprehensive tax support: we’ll file your tax returns, review your expenses, and even follow up on late payments on your behalf. Even better, you only pay for Hnry when you’re getting paid through your Hnry Bank Account.
With Hnry, you can focus on what you do best, knowing that the rest is taken care of.
How Does Hnry Work?
1. The Hnry Bank Account
When you sign up for Hnry, you get given your own unique Hnry Bank Account to have all your self-employed income paid in to.
As soon as your Clients pay you in to this Bank Account, we automatically calculate, deduct and pay exactly the right amount of all of your taxes and compliance (Income Tax, ACC, GST, Student Loan) before immediately passing the remainder on to a personal Bank Account of your choice, along with a payslip.
When the time comes, we'll file all your Income Tax (and GST) returns for you - at no extra cost!
No more danger of dipping into your tax money, no more spreadsheets, online calculators and manual payments, no more Provisional Taxes; no more hassle!
2. The Hnry App
The Hnry app is packed full of useful features for the self-employed:
- Invoice your clients, and we'll even follow up with them if they're late paying
- Raise your Business and Home Office Expenses, and our team will review them to make sure you get the right tax relief
- Get your Payslips each time you get paid, and see all your tax deductions
- Manage your payments, and take control of where your money goes every time you get paid, using the Hnry Allocations feature
- View your Dashboard and use our Personal Financial Management tools.
3. The Hnry Team
You don't just get a Hnry Bank Account and some software, you also get access to our team. Our Hnry team are experts in self-employed tax, and we're always on hand to answer your questions and help out. The team will review all your business expenses to make sure you get the right tax relief right away, and we can also help you get set up with clients or recruiters.
Hnry is a registered tax agent for both ACC and IRD, and as such as can represent you to both of those agencies.
SIMPLE TAX FILINGS
Included in your Hnry fee, we will file your returns for the current Financial Year; for past Financial Years, we charge a one-off filing fee.
SMART INVOICING SOFTWARE
Easily send Invoices to your Clients from the Hnry app and the team will chase any late payments.
ONLINE PAYMENTS FOR YOUR INVOICES
Your Clients can pay your invoices online via credit card, at no extra cost to you.
CREATE AUTOMATIC PAYMENTS
You can set aside a percentage of your income to be automatically deducted each time you're paid (‘Allocations’). You can choose to set up as many Allocations and at any percentage (up to a combined 45%) that you'd like and to any New Zealand bank account (utility companies, your KiwiSaver, your Mum).
Hnry brings contracting and freelancing into the 21st century by providing you with the support and infrastructure to make your financial admin a thing of the past.
Ratings and Reviews
Great service but poor app
Been waiting for this app for a while, sadly a little disappointing.
Bugs: the screen-to-screen animations aren’t logical, it has weird formatting issues on iPhone X displays, swipe gestures give unexpected behaviour. I could keep going but you get the idea.
Looking forward to the next iteration. Would like to see push notifications when invoices are paid and other alerts. Heaps of potential for a great app here.
Edited: there was a bug where logging in didn’t persist, since fixed!
Developer Response ,
Great to hear you are enjoying the Hnry Service!
We have addressed an issue with the app not staying logged in, can you try logging out and in again one more time for the change to take effect?
If you’re still having this issue please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org so we can debug the issue further (similar for formatting issues, if you send through screenshots we will work on fixing these).
We definitely see this as a first release and will be working to improve from here, we are currently working on adding push notifications for when you get paid.
Works but needs work
Would be super helpful to be able to pull contact directly from my phone contact instead of the need to set them up separately and before invoicing.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
